to the bathroom? suffer from urgency? hesitancy? do you get up more than once a night? can you even sit through a movie? or worse, have a diminished sex drive? if so, chances are you have an enlarged prostate. fact: 30 million men now suffer from an enlarged prostate. fact: every other man now watching this show will someday face the same painful problems. until now you had three choices: take expensive drugs with potentially serious side effects, face painful and bloody surgery, or try and live with the pain and embarrassment. fact: you don't have to live with it anymore. introducing prosvent, the all-natural solution so good, it's guaranteed to give you relief in less than 30 days. >> i experienced within the
12:31 pm
a significant change. >> you know, not having to worry about running to a bathroom is unbelievable. >> when i started taking the product and i wasn't getting up at night, it was great. i mean, the rest, you know, you get at night, you know, was great. i didn't have to get up. >> it's just a little pill that i just take, and it, it makes a big difference. >> i'm not ruled by going to the bathroom, and i don't think i have to worry about those things again. >> i mean, i hadn't slept through an entire night maybe 10 years. i mean, it was just remarkable. >> it's like my youth. [laughs] i feel, i feel great. >> announcer: and you can start feeling great again too, without harmful side effects and without painful surgery. today you're going to find out what the prostate is, what it does, why it causes so many problems for so many men, and what you can finally do about it simply, easily, and safely. this is dr. larry may. he received his medical degree from harvard, is a faculty member at the u.c.l.a. school of medicine and is
12:32 pm
the best doctors in america. he's helped thousands reverse and control the problem of an enlarged prostate. today he'll help you. >> dr. may, the numbers, they're unbelievable. half the men over 50 in this country-- that's 30 million men-- suffering from an enlarged prostate? >> barbara, that's right. every man has a prostate, and as surely as their hair is going to turn gray, that prostate is going to enlarge, and by the age of 70, 80% of men will have problems. as men age, testosterone, the male hormone, is converted to dihydrotestosterone, a much more potent variety, and it stimulates the prostate cells to grow and multiply and the prostate to enlarge. >> what kind of problems does that cause? >> a weak stream, hesitancy, stopping and starting, urgency, frequency, getting up frequently at night to urinate, ultimately pain, and sexual dysfunction. >> and virtually every man is gonna face this? >> every man has a prostate, and
12:33 pm
they're gonna experience symptoms. >> let's back up just a minute. what is the prostate, and why the problem? >> the only function of the prostate is it provides fluid to transport the sperm, but just like in real estate, location is everything, and the problem is the location of the prostate. here's the prostate, located just below the bladder, which is where the urine accumulates and then flows through this tube called the urethra. the prostate surrounds the urethra, and as it enlarges, it squeezes the urethra, slowing the flow of urine, much like you can see in an hourglass. the sand flows through just like the urine flowing through the urethra, and the prostate surrounds it, slowing the flow and ultimately stopping it. and a doctor can help because a doctor performs an exam we call a digital rectal exam, and he can feel the prostate and say, "hey, your prostate's getting a little big," but unfortunately that usually doesn't occur until the 50s, and the growth of the
12:34 pm
and unless the symptoms are now debilitating, the doctor may not offer any treatment other than to rule out a serious disease. to wait until your life revolves around the bathroom or you lose your sex life is no life at all. >> and then it's back to the doctor. >> back to the doctor for drug treatment-- prescription medications which may relieve the symptoms but often the side effects are worse: decreased libido and even impotence. plus, the prostate can continue to grow. ultimately there's surgery. >> but at least the problems go away, right? >> yes and no. there are many types of surgeries, and they each have their own problems and side effects, and often they need to be repeated. there's the gold standard, what we call a turp, or transurethral resection of the prostate. for this we use an instrument known as a resectoscope. >> that looks scary. >> it is, and it's a 12-inch instrument that you introduce through the penis into the area where the prostate is, and then you scrape away the prostate,
12:35 pm
create a new opening. it's painful, it's bloody, it requires a hospitalization, but patients submit to it because untreated, the enlarged prostate can damage the bladder, cause renal failure, lead to infection, or ultimately obstruct urine flow completely. >> but there's something that can help. >> this is prosvent. it contains natural substances and minerals which have been shown in study after study involving thousands of patients to reduce the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, promoting prostate health and returning men to a normal existence in less than 30 days. >> i love driving a school bus. i love the kids, but when you got kids on the bus, you can't just "you got to go, you got to go..." you can't. and i thought i was gonna have to give up driving a school bus. and so when this thing came about, i figured this is something i want to try, and it worked. it worked within a week. you know, not having to worry about running to a bathroom is unbelievable. it's kind of changed my life to what it used to be.
12:36 pm
because it's made a big difference in my life. >> i'm surprised it worked, and i'm surprised it worked so quickly, because within a week and a half, i was doing fine after that. i wasn't going to the bathroom during the night. >> sometimes you have the urge to go to the bathroom, and you stand there, and nothing's coming out, and then when it finally comes out, it trickles out. well, now, after taking the pill, i've noticed that i go less frequently and when i do have to go, it just comes out, and boom, right back to bed. >> what's in this? >> it's the most comprehensive formula that's ever been developed. it contains stinging nettle. this herb has been used for years for prostate and urinary problems, even for the relief of pain from urinary tract infections. it's especially helpful in relieving frequent urination, particularly overnight. pygeum africanum, also found to reduce frequency and urgency. pumpkin seed oil contributes additional sterols. saw palmetto to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to
12:37 pm
cause of prostate enlargement. acting together and in concert, they inhibit prostate enlargement, reduce frequent overnight urination, and dramatically improve urinary flow. lycopene, a nutrient antioxidant that's derived from tomatoes. and then there's vitamin d and zinc, which help contribute to overall prostate health. i have never seen a combination of ingredients together in a formulation that is so effective in eliminating the debilitating symptoms. >> very happy to be able to be normal again. i did think of it as an old man's problem. for me to have it at 40 instead of 60, um... was a little alarming. after the first week, i noticed that i didn't have to stop what i was doing at work. i could continue working. this is wonderful stuff, remarkable stuff. i wish someone had told me about it sooner. >> i went from three to four times a night to once a night getting up.
12:38 pm
and it works. >> i've been getting up, like, two, three times a night, sometimes four times a night to run to the bathroom. dire urgency to get there, and then, you know,... not much happens. before i knew it, going... waking up once, and then a couple of weeks later, a few weeks later, a whole night's sleep. wow! wonderful! >> i want every man watching right now to answer these questions. in the last month, have you had the sensation of not emptying your bladder completely? do you urinate less than two hours after you've just finished? do you start and stop several times while urinating? do you have a weak urine stream? when you have to go, do you feel an urgency like you might have an accident? do you strain or push? and finally, do you get up two or more times a night? if you answered yes to any of these questions, you may already have an enlarged prostate, and if you've answered yes to
12:39 pm
something about it now. >> and prosvent can help? >> prosvent can absolutely help, and it does it without side effects. prescription drugs can help, but they do it with side effects that may diminish your sex life. and surgery, while it can sometimes help, can be bloody, dangerous, and often has to be repeated. >> how long till they start seeing changes? >> many men will see changes within two weeks, but most will experience benefits within 30 days. >> if you or someone you love suffers from the symptoms of an enlarged prostate-- frequent urination, urgency, hesitancy, reduced flow, pushing or straining, pain, or a diminished sex drive-- pick up the phone now. get your life back. >> announcer: do you or someone you love make too many trips to the bathroom? suffer from urgency that is hard to control? have a weak stream or find it difficult to start and stop?
12:40 pm
a night or find it next to impossible to sit through a movie? worse yet, is a diminished sex drive destroying your life? if you answered yes to more than one of those questions, you are probably one of the 30 million men who suffer from an enlarged prostate. until now, you had three choices: take expensive drugs with potentially serious side effects, suffer painful and bloody surgery that often must be repeated, or try and live with it. you don't have to live with it anymore. introducing prosvent, the all-natural solution so good, it's guaranteed to give you relief in less than 30 days. prosvent is a unique combination with naturally occurring substances shown to reduce the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, helping return men to comfortable and happy lives, and no side effects. it has pygeum africanum,

minutes and get a 30-day supply of provigor for those loving moments as our free gift. don't wait. call now to get prosvent for 30 days. all you pay is shipping and processing. >> so it's pretty obvious that men should start using prosvent way before symptoms start to appear. >> absolutely, because the prostate begins to grow long before symptoms. here's our normal walnut-sized prostate in the 20s. no symptoms. by the 30s, there's often enlargement occurring, but still no symptoms. by the 40s and 50s, the enlargement continues, but now symptoms begin to occur. the prostate squeezes the urethra, slows the urine, ultimately stopping the urine flow. recently, i sat with a group of men who'd been experiencing some of those symptoms. this was the first time they'd talked in a group. >> i can't remember the last night i didn't have to get up four or five times. i mean, i was saying it to myself just two or three nights
12:44 pm
to experience an eight-hour uninterrupted sleep?" >> when you get to a certain point, it's almost like being a drug addict, where you're worrying about your next drug. i'm worrying about where the next bathroom is. if i'm on a plane, am i in the aisle seat? the worst one was, though, i took my son to go see the last lord of the rings. i thought it was a two-hour movie. i'm in there-- i make it two hours on the nose. all of a sudden, this thing's going, and i'm going, "oh, no." >> you're going, "throw the ring, throw the ring..." >> please... is this the end? >> i got news for you. i'm very happy that my wife is an r.n. she worked in a hospital, and we used to get urine... the urine cups. put it in the trunk. i'd reach down, "hello there, how's everything?" [laughter] "oh, yeah, sure, fine." >> i thought it was normal to pee two or three times a night. >> sometimes my doctor would say, "you know, you're not 21 anymore," so i just sort of wrote it off as that. until finally he said, "well, just how many times are you going," you know? i said, "five, six, sometimes seven." >> you got up five or six, seven times a night?
12:45 pm
>> you didn't think there was something strange about every hour-- did you ever sleep? >> i thought what goes in goes out. >> are we that stupid or that embarrassed over something that we shouldn't be embarrassed about? >> yes! >> i think embarrassed and, um, living in denial. >> we notice these changes so subtly that they don't really register, and that's why we always become aware of a problem when it's too late. >> the truth is that now i start mentioning it to my friends. i go up to guys that, you know, when i'm standing at the urinal and there's a guy standing next to me and he's slower than i am, i ask him how long his prostate's been enlarged... [laughter] and he doesn't know what the hell i'm talking about. >> it's a great pickup line, absolutely. [laughter] >> man: does he slug you? >> in the john-- they love me for that! [laughter] ...what happened when you started taking prosvent? >> it probably took, you know, maybe two weeks-- 10 days to two weeks-- before i really started knowing-- instead of three times a night, i might get up once now, and i had one or two nights where i didn't get up at all. i was, like, shocked. i mean, i hadn't slept through an entire night maybe 10 years. i like it. i'm taking it. >> i am very happy.
12:46 pm
i mean, i take the stuff and, hey, i'll sleep all night long. >> it's really funny. i was just-- we went on a trip. my wife and i said, "let's get away before the holiday." so we had to sit in the car. >> oh, boy. >> oh, boy. >> before i started taking... i would have had a fit, but i was o.k. i was really surprised. say, six, seven months ago, no. so i love it. it's a great product. >> when does someone-- when should you start doing something about all this? >> at the first sign of any symptoms, that is, that your urinary stream has gotten a little narrower, or you wake up once a night, or you find that you can't make it through the whole movie, that's when you absolutely should start treating it so you don't progress to three of four times wakening at night. >> for me it's remarkable, because i found it to be, you know, probably one of the, maybe the most significant, lifestyle- altering things, and that's, that's huge. >> having gone through what i've
12:47 pm
available when i was in my mid- 20s, i certainly would have talked to my doctor about it, you know, 'cause i mean, i wouldn't wish what i've gone through on anybody. >> if no one takes anything else away from this show, i want them to figure out what's going on, because being silent is being stupid, and i don't want to be stupid anymore. >> absolutely. >> nope. >> right. >> tell us again about what's in prosvent. >> prosvent has a unique combination of natural substances and minerals that both help alleviate symptoms and protect the prostate's health. there's pygeum africanum, stinging nettle, pumpkin seed oil, and saw palmetto. acting together and in concert, they inhibit prostate enlargement, reduce frequent overnight urination, lessen urgency, and dramatically increase urine flow, but we wanted an even more comprehensive formula, so to all of that we added lycopene, a powerful anti-oxidant, plus zinc and vitamin d for overall prostate health. >> before i did anything, i
12:48 pm
leave the house, go to the restroom. when you get to the next destination, go to the restroom. i haven't experienced that since i've been taking the pill. so it definitely has improved my daily routine and the quality of my life. >> it happens every two, three hours, and then, as i said, when i get up and go to the restroom, come back to bed, i, i have problems to go back to sleep, you know? now that after taking this pill for two weeks now, it helps me a lot, you know? i think i'm more productive and more restful during the day also. >> if somebody had the same symptoms that i had, i would tell them to try this product because of the fact that i don't want them to be an idiot like i was. >> he was on a constant search for whatever bathroom he could get to in whatever quick amount of time he could get there, and this has enabled him to see life a little bit differently. >> it made my husband a completely different person, and i'm not crabby either, because he kept waking me up every time he would get up. i'm very happy for him,
12:49 pm
>> so many times wake up at night-- five, six times at night-- and even for only a few drops, and i have to go. i cannot hold. so my life is a lot better now. it has changed my life, changed my life. >> there was some times when i didn't quite make it to the, to a bathroom sometimes, some places, but now, oh, jeez, i can't... i just can't get over how great these here pills work. >> the best thing about taking prosvent is, not only do i not have to get up three or four times a night, but i don't have to take drugs. >> now is your chance to order. you really can change your life for the better. and still ahead, we have callers with questions for dr. may. >> announcer: do you or someone you love make too many trips to the bathroom? suffer from urgency that is hard to control? have a weak stream or find it

12:54 pm
but the man of 62 who has benign prostatic enlargement is also the man who is at risk for cancer. remember, i encourage every man at the age of 50 to see their physician, have a digital rectal exam, and get a p.s.a. measure. you've got to rule out cancer. then prosvent can help alleviate the problems of an enlarged prostate and increase your overall prostate health. >> barbara: and no side effects? >> these ingredients have been studied countless times with thousands of patients and no side effects. >> i'm glad to say we have a woman on the line. francine from philadelphia, what's your question for dr. may? >> i'm really worried about my husband. he says he's fine, but i know something's wrong with him because he just gets up all night long to go to the bathroom, and when he goes to the bathroom, he's in there forever. he said nothing's wrong because his p.h.-- p.s., whatever you call it, p.s.a.-- is negative, and he just won't talk about it.
12:55 pm
>> francine, you've got to talk to him. understand that it's unlikely that he has cancer. that's what the p.s.a. means. but those symptoms are horrible, and they're interfering with his life and yours, and you've got to persuade him that there is something that can be done and he doesn't have to live with those symptoms. >> this is a perfect example of how it not only affects the man but his loved one too. i can't believe how men just think this is gonna go away. francine, if you're still there, you got to pick up the phone and you got to order this for him, put it down, and make him take it, because it's not gonna only help him, it's gonna help you and your relationship before it gets any bigger problems. >> and he's gonna be grateful for your help. >> all right, we have time for one more caller, dr. may. neil from los angeles. how are you doing, neil? you have a question? >> yes, doctor, you know, i've been having these symptoms that you've been describing for many years now, and you know, i've tried a lot of things. why don't i just have the prostate removed?
12:56 pm
>> neil, your body is not like a car. you can't just change the oil filter. you may be trading a bad problem for a worse one. if you have your prostate removed, you run the risk of damaging the nerves and winding up incontinent, impotent. it is not the treatment of choice. it is truly your last resort. >> now, we only have a couple of minutes left. is there anything else that you want to add? >> the problem of an enlarged prostate is inevitable. it's going to happen to every man listening out there today. so far it's been a silent epidemic. don't be afraid to talk about it. don't be embarrassed. don't wait until the problems overtake your life. if you have a family history of prostate problems or have any symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, hesitancy, getting up frequently at night, pain or discomfort when urinating, or a diminished sex drive, try prosvent today. get back your life. >> for dr. may and myself, thank you for joining us and be well. [
12:57 pm
>> i had run out of the samples at one time, and i noticed going back to getting up once a night, then twice a night, and i said-- that's when i really realized that i really-- this product was really working and that i should continue taking it. >> going to bed and being able to get a full night's sleep, get up in the morning, and make believe i'm a racehorse was unbelievable. >> i want to be healthy, and i am. maybe i'm a little overweight, but that's because i eat too many cookies, but what are you gonna do? >> announcer: introducing prosvent, the all-natural solution so good, it's guaranteed to give you relief in less than 30 days. have your credit card ready when you call. don't suffer through more sleepless nights. don't let urgency and frequency ruin your days. an enlarged prostate may be inevitable, but it doesn't have to be a life sentence. prosvent can help restore your life. sleep peacefully through
